A successful organization has released three roster members.
Esports organization 100 Thieves features some of the world’s top Fortnite: Battle Royale competitors. Their robust lineup includes Fortnite World Cup contenders Davis “Ceice” McClellan, Hayden “Elevate” Krueger, Diego “Arkhram” Lima and Brendan “Falconer” Falconer. Their recent acquisition of top Euro Martin “MrSavage” Foss Andersen and NA West contender Brodie “rehx” Franks shook the competitive Fortnite stratosphere. 100 Thieves continues to remain in the ultra-popular Battle Royale title despite other organizations stepping away.
Unfortunately, in Fortnite, players are typically valuable either with their content or competitive results. Despite their impressive lineup, 100 Thieves parted ways with three of their Fortnite players seemingly out of nowhere yesterday afternoon.
Kyzui, Grandmateets and Klass Exit 100 Thieves

The 100 Thieves Live Twitter account made the announcement yesterday. Without a detailed explanation, the tweet read:
“Today we part ways with @Gigz, @klass, @kyzui, and @GrandmaFN. Thank you for your time on 100 Thieves. We know you will all continue to see success in your careers.”
Fortnite contracts are never a matter of public record, so its difficult to surmise what led to these roster moves. Brandon “Klass” Weaver spent just over a year with the organization. One of his career highlights under the 100 Thieves banner was a 28th place finish at the Fortnite World Cup. Klass just recently took 11th place in the Chapter 2 Season 2 Fortnite Champion Series alongside duo partner Tristan Hipp.
Gabriel “Kyzui” Harlos spent the longest time of the three with 100 Thieves after joining in February of 2019. He joined the roster just one day after the likes of Ceice and Elevate. Kyzui’s proudest competitive Fortnite achievement took place in Chapter 2 Season 1. He won the Fortnite Champion Series alongside NA West teammates Sogys, Domo and Vicaros.
The most shocking of the three roster changes is that of Brett “grandmateets” Squires. He spent a mere six months with 100 Thieves after joining in November of 2019. His short-lived endeavor with the organization included a handful of high Cash Cup placements. Grandmateets also took 21st in the Chapter 2 Season 2 FNCS with duo partner Mikey.
Clearing Room for Free Agents?
With three spots empty on the 100 Thieves roster, it’s worth wondering what direction the organization will take next. Epic Games recently released a detailed roadmap of what competitors can expect in the future of competitive Fortnite. Organizations may now have more of an inclination to stick with Fortnite despite their tumultuous history.
Now that 100T officially involved themselves in the European scene, Chris “crr” Williams or Moussa “chapix” Faour could find their way onto the roster. The list of NA East free agents is even longer. Some of the notable players include controller players Av and Scoped. Multiple-time Fortnite Champion and recent FNCS winner Rocco “Saf” Morales is still on the free-agent market as well. 100 Thieves could be looking to bring in any of these players. With their recent acquisitions, Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag and company are not looking to exit Fortnite any time soon.
